Sounds like the start components are getting weak or you are getting a low voltage condition. If you have it plugged into a extenstion cord the manufactures of all equiptment says that that's is a "no no" try to more it to where it get its power directly from the outlet and see if that helps. if not then you can try the new components for the compressor. Also another thing is the condenser clean? having a dirty compressor wiill also affect thie unit because the head pressure doesn't have time to equallize before the compressor try's to start up. Another thing to look at is the freezer empty you may want to put some gallon bottles full of water into it that will make the unit not short cyle as much. Good luck with this.

What is the first thing to check after a power surge caused by a close by lightning strike?


See if everything works. Stereos & TV's are usually the first to go. Items with digital devices go next analogs after that & grounded devices last. A whole house surge suppressor costs about 50 bucks and is just a few wires to connect & at the very least wall adapter surge suppressors should be connected to everything.

Compressor running continuously. Hearing surging sound. Both fridge & freezer not cooling.


there may be a blockage in the evaporator tube in the fridge sections and the only way to establish what the fault is will be to have fridge technician run test on it

What does a CE error code on an Electrolux refrigerator (model EW26SS65GS) mean?


My fridge was having the same problem with CE being displayed, light and touch selector not working. With the assistance of one of my sons, we tilted the fridge back slightly and removed the control circuit board. Two of the three 470 u F capacitors were toast. My son drilled out the plastic brads holding the circuit board in the pan, then removed all three of the 470 u F capacitors. He soldered 3 new capacitors in place (0.59 cents each) and used 4 small screws/nuts to secure the board in place. After looking at the capacitors, he said a power surge had caused the damage. We went right out and bought a surge protector for the fridge. My fridge works perfectly now. While protecting tvs and computer from surges, I had never even thought of using a surge protector for the more costly fridge! Hope this helps someone else avoid an shamefully expensive parts replacement.

Our power went out for a few minutes yesterdat and since then our refrigerator and freezer aren't working. What could cause this problem? -Thanks.


first of all I would check the outlet where your fridge is plugged in to make sure the power surge didn't affect it. maybe plug in a lamp. if it is ok, and the fridge will not start at all, i would check the relay/overload on the compressor as it may have been compromised by the power surge when the power came back on. these components start the compressor which in turn starts the cooling/freezing of your fridge. hope this helps.

We HAD A POWER SURGE NOW FRIDGE WILL NOT SWITCH ON


99% chance that the surge blew the power supply board. If it is a French door, bottom freezer model with ice and water through the left hand top door, it may have taken out the motherboard too. Samsung uses at least two boards, one main motherboard and a power supply board that powers the main.

Fridge not working on 12V or 220V


hi simon, i would say your ac heater is gone bad. it could have open up and no longer heating when you have a power surge . these heating elemenent are also located in the gas generator. you have to replace this heating element.

Amana bottom freezer refrigerator-


No appliance manufacturer recommends the use of aftermarket surge protectors. They pull high amperage at start and exceeds most protectors. You can have a whole house surge protector installed in your main panel by a licensed electrician. They are the only method that works when serious surges happen.
